Latest Atlantica Introduces the New Face of Icelandair

Atlantica No. 6 2008, the sixth and final installment of Icelandair’s in-flight magazine this year, is now onboard planes. Titled “More Icelandair,” this issue introduces passengers to the new look and feel of Icelandair’s revamped fleet.

After careful consideration and a lot of hard work, Icelandair has decided to bring a stronger spirit of Iceland and its culture to its operations as well as a host of other improvements and added services: a new interactive entertainment system, new seats and even new uniforms for the crew.

This issue of Atlantica also takes travelers to Norway’s charming capital, Oslo, where staff writer Eliza Reid explores the triad of a great vacation: satisfying the mind, body and soul. But in the end we come back to Iceland to hear the staff’s picks on what to do in the North Atlantic’s favorite winter wonderland: Icelandic spas, countryside hotels, chasing the Northern Lights and climbing glaciers.

Jonas Moody speaks with artist/musician Yoko Ono on the Peace Tower light sculpture she erected on Videy island just off the coast of Reykjavík in memory of her late husband, Beatle John Lennon. And Tobias Munthe meets up with documentary filmmaker and producer Sandi DuBowski to discuss his socially conscious projects focusing on homosexuality and religion. Finally, Eliza Reid sits down with Icelandic pop star Páll Óskar to get to the bottom of his mass appeal in Iceland, his philosophy on life and his plans to live to 111.

Photographer Páll Stefánsson presents a dazzling photo essay on Icelandic water in all its natural forms and also tempts the eye with a fashion shoot of fur and fleece featuring some of Iceland’s most notable labels.

Also in this issue: books for the holidays, the secret life of avocados, mobile hot-tubbing, bedding down in local digs, turbo-charged sleds and wishbones all around.

Atlantica is published by Heimur Ltd. in cooperation with Icelandair. Passengers are always welcome to take a copy with them from the plane.
